. caller: we in michigan have to decide in november whether to allow a big state to come into a city to take over and take a financial manager or an emergency manager and. i guess they think the cities who have -- local government where they can come in and remove the city officials. like the mayor, city council. now, i do not think that is what the presidential candidate mitt romney had in mind when he wanted to say states have rights. but what about the city's rights to elect their own elected officials? and i guess follow their own destiny? winnie's a government interference, i understand you are talking about the federal. but i heard mitt romney say states' rights. is it the right of the state to come into the cities and overthrow the local municipalities? if that is big government, small government. i do not know. i think they should have the right to control their own destiny in their own city. it is on the ballot in november. and i am telling everybody in michigan to a vote it down. we did not need dictatorship. it is a dictator bill. host: thank you. on twitter -- the governm
is not based on any big city in milwaukee, so he could pretty much say what he wanted and his constituency did not watch c-span. they did not really know the guy. but they know him now. warm hughere's no there. i'm in the age group where it will not affect me if he puts his plan. but i do have done a siblings. my husband has done a siblings and it will affect them. they're in their '40's. one more call from j.c. in missouri, a republican. caller: i want ryan to be vice president. he is going to support mitt romney very good. we have to remember they are christians an. we are going to take back america. we are responsible, because you look at the president and the vice-president, the vice president is not helping the jewish people. the president is putting us in debt. our grandkids will not come out of this. host: thanks for the 25 calls. after all that, there is this tweet -- that's the end of that segment. coming up next, jess bravin will join us for the opening of the supreme court term, which starts today, which cases will be at the top of the dogged and what the teams will be. -- the top o
what you have to say. bob is in new york city on the democratic line. caller: i have two questions for the candidates. why, in this day and age, are women's reproductive rights even being called up? are they aware that in this century, at this late date -- why are we going back and rehashing this? an issue that has been dealt with and should not even be on the table? also, i would want to know possibly, and i will vote for the president, and from him i would want to know why -- i thought that his calling when he came to office was to get on top of wall street, get on top of that problem with the big banks, with all the crazy financing that even some of the experts cannot understand. again, i will vote for him, maybe he will do this in the next term, deal with the big banks and the issues surrounding why they have not been regulated or clamped down on in a meaningful way so that we can go forward. if we are going to talk about certainty, we need to know that the banks will not be falling back into the abyss that they got us into before. host: richard, republican line, hello. caller:

from 1997 until january 2009. chuck is on the phone, independent line from kansas city. good morning. caller: good morning. i just kind of had a question i'm so tired of government interfering in everything and how come the united states has more people locked nup prison than any other country in the world? i mean, there are good people in there that make mistakes, they're human beings and stuff, and i see it all the time and stuff and they're just trapped. >> host: thank you. we'll get a response. guest: well, most criminal law is state in nature and that's really not -- he is lumping persons who have violated local ordinances, not many of them in jail, persons who have violated state law, and that is a wide array of laws that you can violate. marta, robbery, most of those are state. you have a few federal laws, criminal in nature. and i don't know if he's comparing apples and oranges, if he means -- i'd like to know the violations of state and local, if they have comparable laws in china and russia. i don't know that we fully agree with his analysis that we have the most in jail. i
